Confessions Of The Wildy Insane

By @Jkleinbohl

Healing isn't easy

I’m proud as **** of who I am today. I have had some traumatic experiences.. I don’t like to say I’ve survived things, because I’ve fought..like hell at times.. Against things that most people would of cowered to.. I won’t get into details just yet..that’s not what this chapter is for.. This chapter is my warning.. A warning to the faint hearted.. This writing will not be sweet and easy.. It will be, as I am.. Real, raw and honest.. I will not candy coat things.. I will not try to find the words that are easy to hear when I try to describe to you how i was shook to my core, knocked down, heart broken.. I will not belittle my pain for your well-being.. I will not add a single degree when I tell you about the coldness I’ve seen and felt..rather, I will leave you looking at your breath, shivering, covered in goosebumps. I will not disguise the ugliness I’ve seen with something easier to look at.. These are my wounds, most of which I’ve thrown salt on before letting heal, and I will not leave out even a millimeter when I tell you how deep they are.. They are not beautiful, but they’re mine and I have found the beauty in them and ill make sure you see it too..

This writing isn’t for the hopeless romantics either.. My story isn’t romantic even though it’ll radiate love.. Its not poetic nor is it simple.. I will love, fiercely, I will fight for love & refuse to give up on love.. But, don’t think it is some kind of love story.. Its a story of the ugly ttruths.. Its proof that life is a beautiful lie and the realization that death is the ugly truth.. This story is about how healing isn’t easy, its the hardest thing you may ever have to do..This story is mine.. And I don’t really care if anyone reads it.. But if you’ve made it this far than you just might..if you do, I hope you find some comfort in the way I string the words together, I hope it makes you cry..laugh..scream.. I hope it leaves you feeling less alone.. I hope it helps you.. I hope it keeps you alive for another night..because, you see, life is grand..& it really is a wonderful life..there’s just some bad days..
